5 Cool IFTTT Recipes To Make Your Life Easier
In our blog earlier this week, we offered a simple intro into IFTTT (If This Then That engine). Today we are having some fun and looking into a few cool IFTTT recipes that can help you make things easier and get some tedious routine tasks out of the way.
First one on the list is a recipe for a situation we’ve all found ourselves in, at least once. Whether it’s a bad first date or an awkward conversation you want to get out of, IFTTT has your back. This “Text To Escape” recipe will make sure you get an “urgent” call just at the right moment. After activating the recipe, all you need to do is sent a text with the hashtag #helpme to the IFTTT number for your region, and you will get a call with a pre-recorded message asking you to take off. Yep, it’s that simple.To add the recipe to your collection, click here.
Paid App On Sale
One thing that can stop us from getting an app we really like is that unsightly dollar sign, telling us that the tool or game we want is not free. Well, what if it was? Quite often, developers put up their apps on for free to get noticed. You wouldn’t want to miss an occasion like this, right? A simple IFTTT recipe can help you get updates when a paid app goes on sale. To add the recipe to your collection, click here.
Keep Track Of The Hours You Put In
There is a cool published recipe on IFTTT that notes down how much time you spend at a particular location (say, office), and then nicely puts in your hours into a Google spreadsheet. That saves you from a great deal of manual timesheet making and gives you a clear picture of how busy you have been at the end of the month. To add the recipe to your collection, click here.
Get Your Phone On Mute When In The Office
Having your phone go off in the middle of an important meeting is not the best way to win over your boss’s heart. However, a task as simple as muting your smartphones when getting into the office or a meeting room can often go forgotten. A simple IFTT recipe can get this solved by automatically muting your phone when you walk through the office door.To add the recipe to your collection, click here.
Pay On Time
As much as we may despise the idea of paying the bills, this is something that has to be handled sooner than later (just like going to the dentist). Once again, IFTTT comes to the rescue. This recipe can send you a reminder by SMS whenever it’s time to pay the bills. To add the recipe to your collection, click here.
